"Para Kay B" by Ricky Lee


"Me quota ang pag-ibig. Sa bawat limang umiibig ay isa lang ang magiging maligaya. Kasama ka ba sa quota?"

Blurbs from the back of the book:

"Weeks after reading the novel, Ricky Lee's characters continue to haunt me... [T]hey mesmerize, seduce, and provoke. There is hardly anything orthodox about them or the style in which their stories were written, but they are all so compelling because at the core of Ricky's work is the universal, irresistible yearning to find love—no matter how flawed, painful, or even dangerous—as long as it makes us hope that it's worth it. And it is. I wish I could film this novel, but not before I relish re-reading it again and again for its literary wizardry!" - Marilou Diaz-Abaya, Filmmaker and educator

 "Namumukod ang mga akda ni Ricky Lee sa lalim ng pagdalumat at mapangahas na teknik. Nangunguna rin siya sa masikap na paglalapat ng teoryang pampolitika sa kanyang mga binabasa at isinusulat." - Bienvenido Lumbera, National Artist for Literature

"Ricky Lee is one of the best Filipino writers ever, bar none. This long overdue novel will prove that he rules on the page as well as on the screen." - Ely Buendia, Musician

 "Hindi ko mabitiwan and nobelang ito maski ihing-ihi na ako. Minsan paumpisa na ang Boy & Kris at hinahanap na ako ni Kris, but I just couldn't stop reading. Ricky Lee is one of the best storytellers of this generation. Formidable and vulnerable at the same time. His fiction is truthful. Para Kay B is hilarious, painfully real, infinitely fascinating, riveting and is deftly crafter by a master. The characters are totally insane, just like you, me and Love." - Boy Abunda, Media personality
